Ramones • S/T (Sire 1976)
_____
#JulyVinylChallenge: 
Day 10: Needs to be heard on Vinyl 
_____
The raw energy that is the Ramones demands the warmth of the vinyl format. This is one of the first punk records I ever heard; and it's still one of the best. Classic record. And perfect on black wax.

Stinking Lizaveta/Hell Mach Four • Split 7" (Ruido Communications / Mood Swing Records 1996)
_____
#JulyVinylChallenge: 
Day 9: Split Seven Inch 
_____
Not only is this a split 7", it's a split label release. I picked this up in a Blacksburg, VA record store in 1997. I loved everything I'd heard from Stinking Lizaveta; I was unfamiliar with Hell Mach Four and this is the only thing I have by them. This record has a hand screened cover of a Joan Davis print. I felt this was a fitting follow up to my last record a day post.

Day 8: Rarest Record (ish)
_____
I couldn't think of the rarest record I own. I don't own Dischord 1-5, nor a first press of some extremely expensive record (I don't think). I have some limited lathe cut records, but I've posted the ones I can think of. And this record isn't even limited to 50, or 100, not even 500... but a vinyl edition of 1000 (this number 386). But it is a die cut, screen printed, foil stamped gem from the rarest of talents, Mr. Daniel Higgs. So I think this can work for today's theme.

#JulyVinylChallenge: 
Day 7: Favorite Color 
_____
My favorite color is black. And honestly, I think black vinyl sounds better than most color vinyl. I'm not sure why. My second favorite color for vinyl is clear. But how interesting would a black or clear post be on a day full of technicolor photos? So I give you The Cosmic Dead on beautiful orange and blue swirl vinyl. Perfect complimentary colors. 
This is 4 songs spread out over 2 LPs. The last song, "Father Sky, Mother Earth," is 40 minutes long spanning sides C & D. This band is a psychedelic as the swirled vinyl itself. These space hippies have enough reverberated echo wash to get lost in. Good stuff.

One Last Wish - "Sleep of the Stage"
SWIPE FOR SOUND >>>
_____

The One Last Wish recording was said to be never to be released. Save for one track on the State of the Union comp, nothing else had surfaced over the years. The band itself was short lived, one year only, and played just 6 shows. Featuring 3/4 of Rites of Spring, with Faith/Embrace alumni Michael Hampton, the band carried on the Revolution Summer sound. I for one am thankful the fine folks at Dischord talked the band into finally giving this recording a proper release.

Day 5: white label test press

I don't have many test press records, and every one I do possess came to me via the artist on the record. 
Also, time certainly flies. I cannot believe this record came out in 2009. It doesn't seem that long ago. 
Knife the Symphony are Cincinnati based band. The drummer, Jerry, runs Phratry records. They play driving, anthemic post-hardcore. I recommend them. Go see them when they play your town.

Fugazi • Function is the Key (Bootleg)

#JulyVinylChallenge: 
Day 4: Record with a Story 
_____
This is not a Fugazi record. This is not a Dischord release. Yet this record came into my possession via Ian while visiting the Dischord House. 
The day after a Fugazi Fort Reno show, I'd made plans to visit with Ian at the Dischord house. He had certain things he wanted to show me including several records he wanted to play. While listening, he mentioned a Fugazi bootleg. I replied I hadn't heard it, so he put it on. As it was playing, he started handing me records saying I "needed them." As he handed me this one, he flipped it over and pointed out that it had the Dischord logo. I said, "did you do this?" He said "No" and laughed. That's when he said, "I got that guy." He didn't elaborate, so I don't know exactly what he meant. But I did take it to mean, don't use the Dischord logo on your bootleg.

The Alan Parsons Project • Ammonia Avenue (Arista 1984)
_____
#JulyVinylChallenge: 
Day 3: Album to Fall Asleep To 
_____
I remember a middle school friend staying over once and commenting how hard it was for him to fall asleep at my house. At night, my mother had country radio playing, my sister had pop radio, and I was playing Godflesh's "Streetcleaner" (and if I had that on LP rather than cassette, that would have been today's selection instead based on this memory alone). I've always drifted off listening to music. 
Another nighttime favorite over the years has been Alan Parsons Project. The smooth melodies and the soft prog rock make for a relaxing listen. I chose this particular album because so many of the songs deal with sleep and the night. Stand out tracks like "Prime Time" and the title track highlight what's great about APP. For me though, nothing can top the golden voice of Colin Blunstone who provides vocals on "Dancing on a Highwire." This LP here was purchased long ago from the local library when they liquidated their vinyl collection.

Day 2: There Can Only Be One 
_____

Who can pick only one record above all records? I cannot even pick just one record from my favorite band. So @ambient_hum, you set up an impossible scenario. 
That said, I debated all day between this record and "Double Nickels on the Dime." I went with this one. I know I've posted this one before. Too bad. This is the one. And what a mighty one. It's ingrained into who I am.

Day 1: Blind Buy
_____
This wasn't just a blind buy, but a totally blind item. I'd ordered a record from the label and it hadn't arrived. I contacted them and they said that it was shipped but appeared lost in the system (I never received a tracking number). So, to make it right, they sent the record I ordered and included an extra one, this one. Seems like this happened to me another time too, but can't remember what that record was. 
This is a very 80s influenced record. Not really familiar with the artist. This record just got filed away. Until I pulled it out for today.

Wrekmeister Harmonies • Night of Your Ascension (Thrill Jockey Records 2015)
_____
#JuneVinylChallenge: 
Day 5: Dedicated to Fellow IG Vinyl community member 
_____
Dedicated to: @cislunar_ 
I had never heard of this band until fellow IG vinyl enthusiast @cislunar_ mentioned they were playing while I was visiting Phoenix and invited me to tag along. We met up at the show and I was impressed by the band. This isn't the only band that has been brought to my attention by Mr @cislunar_. The man has great taste and an impeccable collection of vinyl. 
Wrekmeister Harmonies is the brainchild of JR Robinson. The sound is a mix of choral music, experimental ambient, and doom. His vocals are deep and dark as the subject matter covered in the two compositions here. 
When selecting a record to buy, I chose this one because I was a fan of some of the cast of players, notably for me Fred Lonberg-Holm and Noah Leger, but also members of The Body, Einsturzende Neubauten, Come, and Cave. It also features album artwork by David Yow.

Minutemen • 3-Way Tie (For Last) (SST 1985)
_____
#JuneVinylChallenge: 
Day 4: Last Record
_____
This one is a sad selection for me. Released in December of 1985, it came out shortly before the untimely passing of frontman D. Boon. This was the record that the band had placed ballots in for fans to vote on songs that would become the posthumous "Ballot Results" LP. I'd like to imagine that whoever originally owned this LP sent their ballot in. 
Many note the number of covers included on this LP, but I think it contains some of the most mature songwriting from the guys. The originals on D's side pair nicely with the CCR cover. And "Stories" from Watt's side is one of my favorite latter Minutemen songs. It showed a glimpse of where the band might have been heading if not for the unfortunate accident that claimed D's life. 
This LP is etched on side one with the wise words "Let's say fear is a man's best friend" ... while side B maintains "This period's most popular courtroom drama." I felt this was a fitting record for this category and worth being posted a day late.

Circus Lupus • Super Genius (Dischord 1992)
_____
#JuneVinylChallenge: 
Day 3: Debut Full Length
_____
For this I chose the debut LP from the great Circus Lupus. Not only is it a classic debut, but it's very close to front man @impastah_rasta's 50th Birthday! Happy Birthday Chris!
Circus Lupus was formed by Ignition/early Soul Side bassist Chris Thomson when he moved to Madison, WI. He took over vocal duties here. The band moved to D.C. picking up Seth Lorinczi (ex-Vile Cherubs) on bass.  They recorded this LP in 1992. The band was sadly too short lived, ending after the following years phenomenal Solid Brass in 1993. 
When Circus Lupus split up, Casebolt, Lorinczi, and Hamley stayed together and played under the name Antimony, while Thomson formed a new band with ex-Fidelity Jones members Dug E. Bird and Jerry Busher called Las Mordidas. A few years later, Hamley and Thomson would reunite in a band called The Monorchid. All totally wonderful bands.

Bird and Jerry Busher called Las Mordidas. A few years later, Hamley and Thomson would reunite in a band called The Monorchid. All totally wonderful bands. #circuslupus  #christhomson  #arikacasebolt  #chrishamley  #sethlorinczi  #supergenius  #dischord  #dischordrecords  #debutlp  #records  #record  #vinyl  #vinylrecord  #vinylrecords  #vinylcollection  #vitavinylcollection  #vinylcollective  #vinyligclub  #vinylgram  #vinylparty  #instavinyl  #recordcollection  #igvinyl  #igvinylclub  #instavinyl  #recordoftheday  #recordaday  #vinylcollector  #vinylcollective  #vinylcommunity 
Thurston Moore • Rock n Roll Consciousness (Caroline/Fiction 2017)
_____
#JuneVinylChallenge: 
Day 1: Solo/Side Project
_____
I warned everyone I was going to partake in @analogsea's vinyl challenge. I knew with June being a busy month, it was going to be hard to post, but I beat the buzzer for day one! 
This was a hard decision for me. I toyed with a few different things to post, but some fit other categories. I guess technically this isn't a solo record, nor a side project since Thurston's primary band is defunct. Yet it's marketed as a Thurston Moore solo record. So here it is for day one. 
I thoroughly enjoyed this record. More so than some of Thurston's other solo records. At times, it reminded me of his tracks on Sonic Youth LPs. While it's not fair to judge this to his previous work, it's inevitable. This stacks up nicely along side SY.

Midnight Oil • 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 (Columbia 1983)
______
Like so many others, my introduction to Midnight Oil was the breakthrough hit "Beds are Burning." But I fell instantly in love with their sound.
This was before I got in to punk and underground music heavily. I was really in to heavy metal at the time, but I wore that Midnight Oil tape out. But it and its successor got me interested to pursue their entire catalog. 
I have many CDs and tapes by the Oils, but this recent acquisition is the only full length LP I have. There are many stand out songs included here. Personal faves of mine "Power and the Passion" and "Somebody's Trying To Tell Me Something," plus perennials like "US Forces" and "Scream in Blue." A solid release for sure. 
If anyone out there has some Midnight Oil duplicates or records they no longer want, I'd love to take them off your hands. Don't seem to run across many and this one isn't in great condition, but it played well and that's what really counts.

The Smithereens • Especially For You (Enigma Records 1986)
______
There are several records that I always seem to play the B-side first; this is one of them. "Behind the Wall of Sleep" is such an incredible song and always seemed like an album opener. Plus, I always say the third track is the most important song on a record – It's when a person decides to continue with the record or pull it. The third track on side two is the single "Blood and Roses," another standout and Smithereens hit. So, side two is always first up for this LP. 
That's not to knock the A-side. The actual opening track "Strangers When We Met" is a killer song and as good as any Smithereens single. 
I often like The Smithereens for their singles more than their long players, but they do know how to write a power pop song. But there's also an rough edge undercurrent happening, a lot of emotions are being conveyed in their lyrics. It makes sense this was one of Kurt Cobain's favorite records. 
Some days call for some '60s-influenced, late '80s power pop.

Six Finger Satellite • Paranormalized (Sub Pop 1996)

______
Hailing from Providence, RI, Six Finger Satellite (or 6FS) were one of those bands ahead of their time. They were very much a noise rock band, but added layers of Moog and synths onto the cacophony. Whereas Stereolab's similar mix of Moog and fuzzed out rock was often harmonious and gentle, 6FS was sharp and bludgeoning. I'm a fan of both styles. 
This was 6FS's third LP and it marked a further departure away from guitars but it was no less harsh than its predecessors. 6FS may have been legendary in the underground, but they never got huge, but their sound guy did. He started a label named after his "death from above" PA called DFA records and started a group called LCD Soundsystem.

Chavez • Cockfighters EP (Matador 2017)

______
Keeping my 90s Matador appreciation kick going, here's another beloved band. Chavez hit so hard - the incredible drumming, the lowest low end rumbles, and dueling guitars. 
The band took a break but never officially broke up. They spent the last 20 years making a name for themselves individually, but they finally graced us with this 3 song (same tracks on each side) EP. "The Singer Lied" picks up where Ride the Fader's "You Must Be Stopped" left off. It's like they never missed a day. Not that this a throwback attempt, it's that Chavez has their own SOUND and this is keeping with who they are. A fitting return.

Bailter Space • Wammo (Matador 1995)

_____
Bailter Space are one of those bands that just always feels right, at least to me. They're somewhere between a shoegaze band and a noise rock band. The undeniable pop of songs like "Untied" and "Glimmer" fit nicely up against the edgy "At Five We Drive" or the angular "Voltage." I've listened to this record so much over the years it feels like a greatest hits collection. 
Wammo was the third and last record Bailter did with Matador. I wished I had bought these on LP when they came out instead of CD. Now I scour the internet looking for clean yet affordable copies. If anybody has a Robot World they're willing to part with, I'm here. Also, @matadorrecords should reissue these. Or some label should give Bailter the complete discography treatment. Such a glorious band.

Helium - On Wax

______
Here is all the Helium I have on vinyl. Not included are the CDs, CDeps, and cassettes. I was thinking I had one more single, but maybe not. 
Everything was purchased as it was released. These aren't the reissues, though I bet they sound great based on the compilation's sound quality. 
I really, really want to see Helium this summer but there's not a show near me. Really want to road trip for this one (🙏🏼 @bastin). We will see.

Helium • Ends With And (Matador Records 2017) 
_______
I've been a Mary Timoney fan since her Autoclave days. Helium was such a huge 90s musical love. Their songs were the sort of off-kilter jangling noise rock I loved. And her voice was so dreamy. 
When this collection and the reissues were announced, I almost slept on it like I did with the Unwound series. I already owned so much on it. But I decided I had to have this in the Helium collection. 
What an awesome job with the packaging. I love all of the clippings and write ups from the band members and others involved. I swear I recognize an article from an old Plume zine. That was an old, old penpal from the early 90s.

Sun Ra • Outer Spaceways Incorporated (1968/Org Music 2014)
——
SWIPE FOR SOUND >>>
Excerpt from "Saturn"
——
Sun Ra arrived on this planet on this date as Herman Poole Blount. While his legal name was Le Sony'r Ra, his fans know him simply as Sun Ra (May 22, 1914 – May 30, 1993).
Ra was an American jazz composer, bandleader, piano player, synthesizer pioneer, visionary, poet and philosopher. Known for his experimental music incorporating his Cosmic philosophy, his prolific output and theatrical performances made him a legend. 
This recording was originally released in 1968. It has been re-released over the years. This particular LP was a 2014 RSD version on limited purple and white swirl (though you can't tell it from the photo). I didn't buy it on RSD, instead it was picked up used at @popsresale  in Lexington, KY. They were surprised as I that they still had it. I went to listen to an LP the clerk had told me about and this was sitting next to the turntable. I asked the guy looking through records if it was his, he said no. I felt like Ra was calling me to buy this one. So of course I did. 
Happy arrival day Ra. May your spaceway journeys be infinite.

Minutemen • Tour Spiel EP (Reflex Records 1984) 
______
Minutemen, like the SST stable at the time, were touring machines. The "Tour Spiel" EP celebrated that with four "live" covers recorded in Tucson, AZ. Selections from Minutemen faves CCR, BOC, Van Halen and friends the Meat Puppets make up this seven inch. The back thanks every stop on the "Campaign Trail '84" tour which included three stops near my corner of the world; too bad I was only 9 years old then. 
I figured it wasn't to late for a good #minutemenmonday post. Miss you D.

Low • Things We Lost In The Fire (Kranky 2001/2008 repress)
______
This album has been on repeat all day. Low are so visceral on this LP. I can say with only slight hesitation that this is my favorite Low LP. The band never fails and never disappoints. This one was soothing today. 
This is a double LP; three sides of music and with the 4th side having the lyrics etched into the vinyl. It's a beautiful piece of art, visually and sonically. 
It also sent me in search of another favorite Low record, Long Division. I bought this on cassette way back when. Sadly I couldn't track it down today. So that meant I listened to this one again, and again. That isn't a bad thing.

Space Communion (cassette & test press LP)
Florid Pagoda (cassette)
Weltraumrückführungsübereinkommen (LP & test press)
Rock n Roll Animal (LP & test press).
______
I don't think this is everything, but it's most of the recorded output by a band I love, but know little about. I think I first heard of this band via @christopher_alvear (thanks). I'll post these individually eventually, but I've been meaning to post about these forever. 
Von Himmel were a collective of sound manipulators, space hippies, and neo-krautrockers on the Popol Vuh tip. By the time I heard them, they were no more; the members having scattered throughout the US. I found member Greg Gorlen in San Francisco where I ordered some of these records from. This is strange music for strange people, and I can be very strange. This is another group of recordings that are rewarding if you're in to soundscapes and drones.

Knell • Untitled Lathe Cut 7" (Sifting Through Shards 2016)
——
I am a fan of the band Von Himmel, and when I was buying their records from band member Greg Gorlen, he included this solo project of his. Knell is ambient drone noise. Experimental and free music. This clear lathe cut 7" came with several black and white screen printed inserts printed on card stock. There is no information about when, where, what, who or why. Which makes this a solid mystery. But it's a rewarding one if you're in to soundscapes and drones.

The other night, one of my IG friends @tebharding posted that he had a friend starting an online record shop and encouraged his followers to check it out. So I took a look at what @heartofvinyl_ had to offer. 
Immediately I wrote him about this Sun Ra record. It was a reissue at a reasonable price, so I ordered it. He shipped it out the next day and it arrived today. Fast service for sure. 
I was thrilled to give it a listen. This states that:
STRANGE STRINGS is "The beginning of a series that would be a bridge to some and a wall to others that are not Nature-Sincere. Sincerity, is the only truth in tune with the greater being." This is free music at its freest. Sun Ra was on another plane. But he came from Saturn, so you wouldn't expect anything less. 
Thanks a ton @heartofvinyl_ ... you made my rainy day great.

Frode Gjerstad / Paal Nilssen-Love • Day Before One (Tyyfus 2007)
——
SWIPE FOR SOUND >>>
——
Recorded in 2000, this was the first session of these two towers of free jazz, and native Norwegians, performing together as a duo. 
I've been a fan of both for years. I've also had the pleasure of hosting Frode a couple of times locally. His playing leaves me speechless. And Nilssen-Love ranks near the top of my list of contemporary jazz drummers. Take a listen if your interested and/or unfamiliar.

Days Of... • S/T (A-Team Records 1987) 
____
Here's another long sought after record that an Insta-friend kindly sent my way. My post about wanting this record remains my most commented on post. 
I first heard about this band in the early 90s in a D.C. Mail order catalog. They compared them to Rites of Spring. I was interested but failed to order it. Fast forward to internet days, try searching for this band on google. I could never locate this LP. It was long out of print. 
Days Of... were a North Carolina based band that played with many of the Revolution Summer bands in DC & NC. They have the mid-80s DC sound. There were many "of" bands around this time on the East coast. 
Thanks to the awesome @makeshiftatomsmasher (aka @vinyls_is_not_a_word) this gem is mine. And it lived up to the long anticipation.

Lungfish • Feral Hymns (Dischord Records 2005)
—
Here's another LP I slept on. I bought the CD when it came out, but always meant to go back and get the LP too. Waited too long. I had every other Lungfish record on LP except this one. 
I've met some great people through the vinyl community on Instagram. Earlier this year, this record surprised me in my mailbox. An old friend who is no longer on IG had mailed me this record from Italy. His letter explained that he knew I didn't have it and thought of me when he came across a copy. Thank you again Antioco even though you may never see this post. Here's to a #lungfishthursday on a Tuesday.

Lungfish • "10 East" 7" (Walker/Dischord Records 1995)
—
Sometimes I sleep on a record. Who knows why. This was one of those. I kept thinking it would be there next order until I ordered it and it was out of stock. 
I have had friends who lucked in on getting this via store returns to Dischord, or unbelievably low prices in used bins. I'd been patiently looking for one. Then a dude in Northern KY had one at a reasonable price. So I took it off his hands. Now my official Lungfish collection is complete.

Flying Saucer Attack • S/T; Distance (VHF records 1993; 1994; 2017)
____
Here are two records I've wanted on vinyl forever. When these came out originally in the early 90s, I bought them on CD. Now, years later, the label that put out those CDs back then is releasing the first ever domestic press of these records. I think the whole FSA discography is getting repressed. So I need to get a few from Drag City as well. Now if someone would just do this for Bailter Space. 
Again, these were a pre-ordered release and not a RSD purchase. Thanks VHF records.

Föllakzoid feat. J. Spaceman • London Sessions (Sacred Bones 2017)
____
Living in a small, rural town 75 miles away from the nearest record store means I get most of new vinyl via mail order. I also am not fan of RSD. I love independent shops and recommend everyone supporting them regularly, not on hyped days with over priced "exclusives." That said, I pre-ordered this record the minute I heard about it. I knew it would be amazing. Föllakzoid play some of the best spaced out jams of recent years and having the Spaceman himself on board was sure to only be great. 
This limited edition version comes with a fold over gold sleeve that has a stamped seal on the flip. This is number 123/300.

I first heard about Disappears when Steve Shelly took over drumming duties. Being a 90 Day Men and a Ponys fan, I should have already been familiar. But once I heard them, I was hooked. They range from noise rock to krautrock, from drone to atonal no wave. I know I have posted a few of these before. Been listening to them a lot lately. Missing a few things from the complete discography. Need to get a copy of them performing Bowie's Low.

Vangelis • Albedo 0.39 (RCA Victor 1976)
____
Thursday night listening selection. Feeling the need for the electronic pulses and arpeggios of this classic. 
This is a concept album themed around space physics. An albedo is the amount of light reflected back into space from an object. The album title refers to the average albedo value of planet Earth as it was in 1976. As the back of the LP cover explains - ALBEDO: The reflecting power of a planet or other non-luminous body. A perfect reflector would have an Albedo of 100%. The Earth's Albedo is 39%, or 0.39. 
Vangelis is known for his 80's soundtrack work on classics like Chariots of Fire and Blade Runner. This record is noted for being less influenced by classical music, and more in the Jazz and Rock genres.

Either way, I'm being transported to space right now.

DNA • "You & You"/"Little Ants" (Medical Records 1978/Superior Viaduct 2016)

____
Kicking off my #SevenInchSeptember with a record I wanted for a long time. This record is ground zero of the New York No Wave scene. 
DNA exploded onto NYC's underground scene and recorded this single just weeks prior to the seminal No New York sessions with Brian Eno. This single features the original lineup of Arto Lindsay (vocals/guitar), Robin Crutchfield (keyboards) and Ikue Mori (drums). The sound is abrasive; Detuned/atonal guitars, semi-improvised drumming, and keyboard smatterings. DNA were raw, direct, dissonant and at the same time profoundly 'arty'. This would be a major influence on Sonic Youth. And also, the source for Blonde Redhead's name. I'm glad this is available again.

All the way from Sweden comes the latest release by my favorite Japanese Krautrockers. Minami Deutsch won my heart with their brilliant debut last year. They continue to deliver with these two tracks here. This was limited to 300. But I hear that a repress is already in the works.

Suicide • Suicide (1977 Red Star Records/2016 Mute Records)

Suicide is one of those bands that's so primal, you're either in or not. They carved out their territory in the early NYC punk scene with intensely aggressive live shows with just a frontman and a synth. 
Their songs are haunting, confrontational and still poetic and beautiful. 
The night I heard Alan passed I listened to this record twice before drifting off to sleep. I find a lot of inspiration in their repetitive grooves. This is the stuff of legends. #ripalanvega

Polvo • Cor-Crane Secret (Merge 1992)

I heard the sad news that we lost another musician this AM. Eddie Watkins was the founding drummer of Chapel Hill's Polvo. 
I remember when I really got in to Superchunk and Merge my junior year of high school. Polvo was one of the first bands I got in to soon after. Their music had a Sonic Youth vibe, put went in their own direction. While the guitars get the most accolades, the drumming is no less important. 
I had to break out the Polvo debut this AM and give it a spin in tribute to the backbeat of an indie rock powerhouse. My condolences to the Watkins family.

Joining my brothers in space @jamesrgibson and @jasonnorfleet in our shared appreciation of this band.
I posted the cassette version a few weeks back, but I loved it so much, I ordered the "Weissensee White Vinyl" edition from Captcha Records. 
Got to thank @sunriseoceanbender and all the fine folks who bought our cassette and this one for getting me interested in this band. They hone the sounds started by groups like Can and Neu! and keep the motorik beat alive and vital. Great record.

Mugstar • Lime (Agitated Records 2010)

This Liverpool band harness so much of what I love in music. With obvious influences being Sonic Youth, Hawkwind, and Neu!, they channel the vibe and feel of space rock, krautrock, and psych. 
Of the four songs here, my favorite track is "Serra" which clocks in at just over 13 minutes. However, there is an extended remix of that track by Loop's Robert Hampson that spans 40+ minutes. 
Mugstar have the distinction of recording the last-ever Peel Session with the late John Peel. That's a high honor in my book.

That's a high honor in my book. #mugstar  #lime  #serra  #agitatedrecords  #neokrautrock  #neopsych  #spacerock  #vinyl  #vinylrecord  #vinylrecords  #vinylcollection  #vinylcollective  #vinyligclub  #vinylgram  #vinylparty  #record  #records  #instavinyl  #vitavinylcollection  #recordcollection 
Tsunami • Deep End (Simple Machines 1993)

This was the record I was talking about in the previous post. Tsunami hold a special place in my heart. I first got in to them through their 7"s. They played jangly, noisy indie rock. Principal songwriters Jenny Toomey and Kristen Thomson also ran Simple Machines Records. I was so in to that label at the time. Their commitment to the DIY spirit inspired me. 
This LP has many great songs like "In A Name," "Genius of Crack," "Stupid Like A Fox," and of course their brilliant cover of My Dad Is Dead's "Waters Edge." This is such a quintessential early 90's Indie Rock LP. Great songs that bring great memories.

My Dad Is Dead • Let's Skip The Details (Homestead 1988)

MDID is the creative outlet for Mark Edwards. Based out of Cleveland, OH, the group is essentially a one man band with Edwards providing almost all of the instrumentation. 
Falling in line with other 80s indie noise makers like Big Black and Bastro, MDID packs a wallop. I recently described this record as "bitter, yet delish." The songs are of anguish, regret, betrayal, and desperation. Yet, Edwards straight forward delivery and understated arrangements are rough hewn pop. 
I first learned of this band when Tsunami covered the song "Waters Edge" on their debut LP. I remember asking them about the song and commenting how great it was. They said check out this LP. I tracked one down and it was amazing. There are so many great songs on here: "Baby's Got A Problem," "Lay Down The Law," "Bad Judgement Day," and of course the aforementioned "Waters Edge." Each one a churning ode to regret and anguish. It's not emo, it's Midwestern noise rock.

Zombi • Shape Shift (Relapse 2015)

2x12" mail-order only, limited to 500 Red/Blue Merge Splatter vinyl. This has to be one of the most beautifully pressed records I own. 
Zombi is a Pittsburgh based duo that do heavy synth rock with a horror soundtrack/space/prog-rock vibe. 
Sweet sounds, beautifully packaged.

Disappears • Pre Language (Kranky 2012)

I've been listening to this band a lot over the last few days. I've been a fan of founder Brian Case's previous work in 90 Day Men and The Ponys. Here he provides vocals as well as guitar duty. 
This band combines many things I love and at times has a shoegaze meets noiserock sound that makes me think of Bailter Space and The Fall. The band has been described as "The Stooges jamming with Spaceman 3 at a Neu! concert." That very name-droppy description does fit well on the early LPs. 
This was the first record I heard by them thanks to the addition of Sonic Youth's Steve Shelley on drums. The record has a raw, driving, spaced out vibe, and I love it. 
It's been said they are an anomaly being a rock band on Kranky, but I always felt like they fit in that stable. They are sonic experimenters and I am a fan of the results.

Frodus • And We Washed Our Weapons In The Sea (Day After 2000 / Lovitt 2015)

At first I thought just the color was slightly muted on the cover photo. Then when I went to compare, I noticed it was an alternate frame from the cover shoot. Love slight variances like this that make each version their own. Initial spin of the new version commences now. #rockandrolliswar

Frodus • And We Washed Our Weapons In The Sea (Day After 2000, Lovitt Records Reissue 2015)

Just in time for #FrodusFriday, I got my record in the mail today. Love the translucent green and the clear vinyl. The photo collage on the insert is a nice addition too. 
When this record came out, it was near impossible to find on vinyl. I settled for the CD. Eventually I tracked down an original copy. Still, this reissue with bonus material is a nice addition to my Frodus collection. "There is no final word as long as you breathe. There is no final verse as long as you live." #themachinesneverdied #wewillbevindicated

A Place To Bury Strangers • Exploding Head (Mute 2009)

This was the soundtrack to my early morning and it just may be my favorite record by these NYC noise mongers. 
This is one of those records that I tend to listen to the B-side first. "Smile When You Smile" and "I Lived My Life To Stand In The Shadow of Your Heart" are two of my favorite APTBS songs. Even though this band sticks close to the path forged by Jesus and Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine, there is enough new ground cut to make it not a revivalist fest. I am a sucker for noise with a hook, and sometimes just noise for noise sake.

Willits • Opening (Ghostly International 2014)

Conceived as a "visual" album with the music set to video images created for the music. Opening is described as being designed to inspire a space and expansion. On its own, the ambient music and the subtle grooves of this LP are very peaceful and provide a perfect backdrop for meditation or relaxation. 
Tonight must have been my bliss night. After several days of long work hours, I've relaxed to some peaceful ambient tones.

Mike Watt • WATT: ON BASS (PIAPTK 2015)

Triple groove, eulerian circle, lathe cut poly 4"x8" record. I had to get out an alternate turntable to play this. It is the boiled down essence of the Man in the Van with the Bass in his Hand. Limited to 100 from People In A Position To Know. Thanks to @toystorecowboy for the heads up on this one.

Bailter Space • Vortura (Matador 1994)

I finally added this record to the #vitavinylcollection a few weeks back. It's one of my favorite records by one of my favorite bands. For some reason I chose to purchase my Bailter Space and Sonic Youth records on CD. Now, the former band's LPs are very hard to find. For unknown reasons, Matador deleted their records and no one is repressing them. Some one needs to correct that. Until then I'll look for affordable offerings. 
This one is a cut out LP culled from a DJs collection. The jacket has seen some wear but the vinyl plays fine. It's not the pristine copy I wish I owned. But it was a very welcomed addition to the family.

Maserati • Rehumanizer (Temporary Residence Limited 2015)

I got this record Saturday. I've spun it a few times since. Really in to the opening track and the final two title tracks. Not sure how this will fall in my overall ranking of the Maserati discography. It's nice to see them branch out into more vocal work; loved the vocals on the last LP. Hoping the ones here will grow on me more. Overall, it's a solid record. 
I've been impressed with the skill of drummer/producer Mike Albanese. He's done a great job here capturing what makes Maserati great while the band pushes into a new direction.

Turing Machine • A New Machine For Living (Jade Tree 2000)

____
In the 90's, I was a big fan of the band Pitchblende. They played angular, off-kilter post hardcore/indie rock. Known for complex song structure and often compared to a jazz band, they were a cerebral group, but were still able to be visceral. After the demise of that band, guitarist Justin Chearno and bassist Scott DeSimon started the post-rock, neo-krautrock band Turing Machine. I got into this band around the time of their second record, Zwei, in the mid-2000s. 
When I started hanging around with @bastin and @jasonnorfleet, they loved this band too. Yet, they were fans because of their drummer Jerry Fuchs. I had loved his playing on the Turing Machine records, but didn't know much about him. They informed me and by turn, got me into Jerry's other band Maserati. Sadly, Jerry's life was cut short in a freak accident and this band ceased to be. 
This is their debut record recorded in the Fall of '99. Some similarities to Pitchblende exist here, but the beats are more Motorik, the songs longer, more linear in structure. I return to this record over and over. The music, the design, everything about this speaks to me. Turing Machine were only able to put out 3 records, the last being assembled after Fuchs death. All three are excellent.

DEVO • Freedom of Choice (Warner Bros. 1980)

___
While on vacation a few weeks back, I went to a record shop and picked this gem up. It's a very clean copy of DEVO's biggest hit record. 
I love that it has the original sale price sticker and the hype sticker still included on the shrinkwrap. I paid $7.99 for this, even though it was originally $6.99 in 1980. The catch here is there is a small sticker on the back that looks like it was in a flea market and sold for a dollar. Either way I still feel like I got a deal. The vinyl was very clean. Plus, the insert still has the Devo fan club info and other ephemera they could be purchased. "Gates of Steel" may be my favorite DEVO song. But this one is jammed packed with great tunes, including the big one.

The Most Secret Method/The Dusters • Split 10" (Dischord/Superbad 1997)

____
Today's #teninchoctober selection is another split by two great DC bands. Neither may get the acclaim that some of their contemporaries may get, or even some of the members other bands, but they are great nonetheless. 
Both bands deliver solid, melodic indie/punk rock. I've always enjoyed how catchy both of these bands are. 
Ryan Nelson is not only the very talented drummer of TMSM, but he also illustrated the album art.

A Day in Black and White/Navies • Split 10" (Level Plane 2005)

_____
I am falling behind on the #teninchoctober challenge, so here's a great little slab of wax. 
I've already told the story of the first time I saw Navies play on here. I am pretty sure I bought this EP that night. If Q and Not U was the sound of young DC in 2000, these two bands were that sound in 2005. Pulling cues from their hometown predecessors, but updating and adding other elements. 
ADIBAW always had a Polvo feel on this release. Not as edgy, posthardcore as some of their other releases. This is the sound of friends making music for their friends. 
Navies side is nice and intense the way I remember them. Off-kilter, jagged and raw and totally wonderful. 
Listening to this takes me back to the shows and friends and bands I was in/around in the first part of this century. I guess that's called nostalgia.

Frodus / The Trans Megetti • split EP (Art Monk Construction 1996)

____
Trying to beat the clock on #seveninchseptember by posting early/late #frodusfriday pics of my Frodus singles. 
In the mid-nineties, Art Monk Construction were releasing my cup of tea. These were posthardcore/emo gems. This one is no exception. Both bands deliver here, but Frodus' cut is top notch. "Suspicion Breeds Confidence" is the perfect Orwellian ode you'd expect from the dystopian mind of @zoneplex. 
It had been a while since I last played this record, but when I put it on, it took me back. Intense and beautiful chaotic music. This was what I aspired to in the late 90s/early 00s.

Frodus / Roadside Monument • split EP (Tooth and Nail 1997)

____
Another #seveninchseptember post meant to be part of the #frodusfriday series. 
This split was one of the first releases I bought by Frodus. It made me a bigger fan. The band was really honing their sound. I always loved the track "45 Revolutions," and found it ironic that it was actually played at 33-1/3 RPMs. 
I always loved the design on this record.  Also, white is my third favorite vinyl color. Both bands deliver stellar performances. Such a great EP.

Navies ‎• "House Ties" / "Continental Divide" (Lovitt 2006)

I love clear vinyl. There's something about it that really appeals to me. I love this record. 
I first heard Navies when they opened for Hoover at MacRock. I really liked their set and talked to them afterwards. I told them if they ever played through central KY, to look me up. 
About a year later I set up a basement/backyard BBQ show for them. My band was done by then, so I don't remember who opened. But they were just as great as the first time I saw them. 
I like both songs here, but the instrumental B-side is my favorite. 
Navies were a solid band that I'm glad I got to witness.

Fugazi • Noize Bleed! (bootleg 1991)

It's a #fugazifriday #seveninchseptember post. 
Here's another bootleg from the heyday of Fugazi bootlegs. This one contains "KYEO" b/w "Waiting Room." Not exactly sure where this was recorded, but the audio quality would be marked "good" on the Fugazi Live Series.

Wider ‎• "Triangle" / "Bloom" 7" (Stickshift Records 1993)

Next up for the #seveninchseptember challenge is an NYC band called Wider. 
My main interest in this band is the rhythm section. The bass player and drummer went on to be in one of my favorite 90s bands Chavez. The James Lo plays drums and Chavez frontman Matt Sweeney plays the bass. This band is similar to the heavy, noise rock bands that came out of NYC at the time, Unsane, Helmet, et al. Not bad at all for what it is, but is doesn't hint at the beauty and intensity that was Chavez.

Quixote • s/t 7" (Makoto Recordings 1996)

I noticed several people in the #seveninchseptember challange had issues with the letter "Q." While I don't own a lot of records with bands that start with this odd letter, I thought I'd post one that I hadn't seen.

Quixote was a Michigan emo-core band. They had ex-members of MI hard-core band Jihad. Like many in the mid-90s, they were moving away from more traditional hardcore to the emo sound, embracing their love of Superchunk and Seaweed and other melodic indie bands. All the while blending it with the sound of RoS and the 80s emo bands. Joel Wick, who plays bass and sings in this band, was owner of Makoto Recordings and founder of the Detroit Fest and Michigan Fest.

I always like this 7". I am not sure why I picked it up originally, but from the sticker residue, I can tell I bought this at Ear-X-tacy (rip). This may be a forgotten band/release, but if you're a fan of 90's emo, it might be worth seeking out.

Tear Jerks ‎• Chances Are 7" (Simple Machines 1992)

Since its #lungfishthursday and #seveninchseptember, here is the only single from Tear Jerks.

Tear Jerks were a duo made up of The Tinklers' Charles Brohawn and Lungfish's Asa Osborne. This is a collection of four lo-fi, lovelorn songs.

Around 1992, I became smitten with Simple Machine records. I was already in to the music coming from Lungfish. This is very different than that band, but similar to Brohawn's work with the ultra lo-fi Tinklers.

Machetres • s/t 7" (Dischord/Brick Thrower 1998)

Another "M" 7" for this #seveninchseptember Monday. 
I don't know a whole lot about this band. I bought this because it was a Dischord split release and I have a lot of those. 
I remember talking to Guy Picciotto (who produced this record) about this band. He said it was some neighborhood kids he was was helping out. The band is a Latino punk band with a Ska/Latin leaning vibe. This is number 325 of 500. I always liked the accompanying booklet too. A nice mini-Zine with lyrics and info.

Minutemen ‎• Georgeless EP (Forced Exposure 1993)

THE STORY OF THE FIRST MINUTEMEN DRUMMER: The Reactionaries formed in Dec. '78 with D. Boon on guitar, Mike Watt on bass, George Hurley on drums, and Martin Tamburovich on singing. They broke up in June 79. Boon and Watt started Minutemen themselves in Jan. '80. George Hurley had already joined new wave band Hey Taxi!; so, they asked welder and fellow homeboy Frank Tonche (TAWN-CHEE, just out of the Polish Eagle polka band) to play drums. In April-May '80 the Minutemen played their first two gigs. Greg Ginn saw them and asked them to record for SST Records. Frank Tonche became afraid of punk rock after the second gig and quit the band with only a month to go before recording. Luckily, George quit Hey Taxi! and rejoined Boon & Watt. … The songs on this record (except for "Joe Mccarthy's Ghost") were never released in any version until here. Hurley never learned them so only these Frank Tonche versions exist.

These were recorded live to "Econo Cassette Machine" in March '80 at Frank Tonche's House,San Pedro, CA. They were transferred to Reel to Reel by Ethan James in Oct. 91 and released two years later by Forced Exposure. Most of the text above was lifted verbatim off the back of the sleeve. Also included is an insert with an unrelated short story by Minutemen friend and would be collaborator Richard Meltzer. 
As an avid Minutemen fan, I was eager to get this when it came out. It is more valuable for it's historical context than the recording itself. The recording is rough, but the talent is clearly audible. The songs were good, but Hurley's drumming made it great.

Texas is the Reason • s/t EP (Revelation 1995)

This is an extended #seveninchseptember post. I loved this EP so much, I bought on all formats. 
My buddy @gregdaniels put this up the other day. TITR were a game changer in the hardcorepunk scene. They were tagged "emo," and they were definitely channeling the predecessors like Rites of Spring, Soul Side, and Fuel. This band burned out too quick, but maybe it was for the best. 
They were courted by the major labels and I've always felt that some slimy A&R guy pushed their records on late 90s bands or producers, because a very polished and milquetoast version of their sound made it to the mainstream airwaves. But it all pales to the originals.

Regulator Watts • New Low Moline 7" (Slowdime/Dischord 1997)

#seveninchseptember continues with one of my favorites. I've said it repeatedly, I was a huge Hoover fan. This is Alex Dunham's post-Hoover band. 
I don't know if they're all like this, but on mine, the labels are reversed. So the song on the label is actually on the opposite side. 
The title track is a scorcher, raging with intensity, while the B-side is more laid back and reminiscent of the Regulator Watts full length. This is housed in a nice letterpress cover printed by @dexteritypress when he was at Fireproof Press. A beautiful and treasured record.

Rodan • How The Winter Was Passed
(Three Little Girls Recordings ‎1993)

Here is one near and dear to my heart. I first saw Rodan in the winter of 1992/93. I went to see Crain (whose Jon Cook plays drums on the A-side here), but the band of the evening was Rodan. 
They had a dynamic live show. With three vocalist, all equal in intensity, and taught musicianship, they were a powerhouse. Rodan stepped up the posthardcore/math rock game. With songs pushing the 8-10 minute mark, they were epic. These songs here are some of their earliest recordings released in a small Louisville indie label. 
Rodan became one of the most important bands in the development of my musical tastes. They were short lived, but spawned so many great bands like June of 44, The Shipping News, Rachels, The Sonora Pine, amongst others.

The Dead C • Metal Heart (Siltbreeze 1995)

Formed in the mighty Dunedin, New Zealand scene in 1986, The Dead C are a noise rock trio made up of members Bruce Russell, Michael Morley and Robbie Yeats. 
If I ever wanted to clear the room, I'd put on one of their noise-scape records. Pure experimental noise made with traditional rock instruments. 
Siltbreeze was known for its abrasive bands in the 90s. I always liked this band the most out of the roster.

The Delta '72 • "On The Rocks" (Kill Rock Stars/Dischord 1995)

This was the first release by The Delta '72. At this point, I was still picking up every KRS and Dischord release. The Washington DC/Olympia, Washington connection was strong in the early to mid-nineties. Also, this band featured one of my favorite vocalists, Kim Thompson. I played the early D72 singles to death. 
I'll never forget going to Knoxville to see them only to learn in horror that Kim had left the band. They were still good, but that little extra was missing.

Insert of The Evolution Revolution 7" 
This chronicles the history of the three friends that make up The Ev Rev. Following all their musical endeavors from 1979-1989. 
Many DC luminaries make appearances. But of all the bands, the one I'd loved to have heard was The Crack City Quintet: Tim Green, Seth Lorinczi, Scott McCloud, Nathan Larson, and Chris Thomson.

The Evolution Revolution • s/t EP (Get Hip Recordings 1989)

I first heard about this band in a mail order catalog; it said it was members of the Vile Cherubs and Nation of Ulysses. More like the former, this is a 4 song garage rock romp. These late 80s VA rockers were channeling the 1960s. 
The Ev Rev had Seth Lorinczi on guitar/vocals and Tim Green on drums. These two would go on to be in such bands as Circus Lupus, Antimony, Quails, Young Ginns, The Fucking Champs, among others.

Cupid Car Club ‎• Join Our Club... (Kill Rock Stars 1993)

This second post is to show the "obituaries" on the back and the "Werewolves!" on the labels. "All the kids, they want to join our club"

Cupid Car Club ‎• Join Our Club... (Kill Rock Stars 1993)

Next up for #seveninchseptember is Cupid Car Club, aka The Cupid Car Club, MP. 
This is their sole release. I've also seen this 7" referred to as the "Werewolves!" EP (the word is written on the labels), but I've always called it "Join Our Club"
The CCC were a band concurrent with tail end of Nation of Ulysses but before Make*Up. More similar to the latter, but more garage rock and without the gospel yeh-yeh. They were a very raw band. 
Like NOU & MU, CCC also had a overarching concept behind the band. This "theme" of the band was revolution through teen suicide. The cover depicts various methods of suicide while the back gives an "obituary" for each of the band members. The title I use is written on the front and comes from a line in the song "Grape Juice Plus" (itself a reference to the original Planet of the Apes film). These tracks were recorded at The Pirate House in DC by Guy Picciotto. So many of my favorite releases were recorded there. 
I loved this record. I loved Ulysses. I LOVED the Getaway Car track on the KRS comp and wanted more. Both GC & CCC feature vocals by Kim Thompson. I love her voice and every band she's ever done. Not to mention Ian Svenonius is just a musical genius. I never got to see them live. But, I bet their shows were intense!

Crom-Tech • s/t 7" EP (Ixor Stix 1997)

When I first started posting my seven inch collection in 2013, I didn't write descriptions and barely tagged them. That initial run left off with the Crain "Monster" single. In the interim, I've posted my other Crain single. So I'll start this where I left off. 
#SevenInchSeptember

Crom-Tech were a DC two-piece consisting of Mick Barr on vocals/guitar and Malcolm McDuffie (of Meta-Matics) on drums. They played brief blasts of calculated intensity sung in their own made up language. Much like a 7" out of the DCHC heyday, this record has 12 songs, none lasting much more than a minute. Too weird to be grindcore, to fast to be math rock.

This was the first release on Christina Billotte's Ixor Stix label. It was recorded by Guy Picciotto at the Pirate House.

Shotmaker • The Crayon Club (The Great American Steak Religion 1994)

Joining @nicky_rez and @stevengarbedian in a mid-90s emo/HC vinyl party. Although this band (and most in the original genre) would cringe at that description. Emo's just a word, but I use it. It's an easy tag to associate. Either way, this is a great slab of wax from a great band out of the Great White North on the Great American Steak Religion label. Now, ain't that great!

Getting the Seven Inch September event started a little early (It's already Tuesday AM in Australia.) Here is my Decomposition Records collection: two 7" I've had and treasured forever. 
___
Suture • 7" EP (Decomposition/Dischord 1992)
Red Eye • "Special Delivery to My Heart" / "Reservoir" (Decomposition/Dischord 1995)
___
Both these short lived bands feature Decomposition label head, Sharon Cheslow. She was a DCHC alumni and part of the band Chalk Circle I profiled earlier this month. 
___
Suture featured Cheslow, Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill, Julie Ruin) and Dug E Bird (Beefeater, Fidelity Jones, RLTSOT). Each member switched around instruments with Hannah providing the bulk of the vocals. The music is very Riot Grrrl. 
___
Red Eye featured a combo of Tim Green (NOU, Fucking Champs). This one is has Sharon singing and has a more languid feel. The B side has Tim on "Sonic Space Guitar" which I've always liked.
